BOSTON, April 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Actifio, the Enterprise Data-as-a-Service (EDaaS) company, today announced that CRN has awarded Actifio a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2017 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company's research team assessed each vendor's partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
Actifio offers a comprehensive partner program, starting with opportunity registration, access to marketing programs including content and joint-marketing investment, as well as access to the inside sales demand generation program. The comprehensive online communication program includes access to private portals for collaboration, a central portal with the latest updates including video-based program information, success stories, and selling tools.
"For solutions providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits."
"We're thrilled to see Actifio included on a top list of companies with five-star rated partner programs," said Michael McClurg, VP Global Partners at Actifio. "Actifio is continuously enhancing our partner program and innovating to drive adoption of our Enterprise-Data-as-a-Service offerings. Partners are seeing some incredible results with the close partnership of our Inside Sales team and our joint Account Based Demand Generation program. This five-star recognition adds to our recent recognition as an ESG Channel Acceleration Award recipient, providing further validation of our partner program offerings for Value Added Resellers and Managed Service Providers."
